ZanZibar Cellars is a small boutique winery dedicated to creating unique wines that reflect not only the passion and the vision of its founders but also the terroir of the Columbia and Yakima valleys.

We believe that which separates good wine from great wine is the obsession with details and the strive for perfection. From our extremely low yields (1.5 - 2 tons/acre), to our small batch fermentation and gentle handling process, our cradling efforts are reflected in the quality of our handcrafted wines.

We work tirelessly to create wines that are balanced yet exuberant, elegant yet powerful and unpredictably alive. Above all, our focus on high quality guides us in all of our decision making. We work closely with our vineyards to manage yields and closely monitor watering protocols to ensure the highest quality fruit. As Partners and friends, Ziad Keirouz and Glen Boyd collaborate on all aspects of the business. For over 20 years in the creative fields of Science and Engineering, both were fueled by the passion to succeed and create something unique. Today, the same drive and passion guide our work at ZanZibar Cellars. From selecting the best grapes and the best French oak barrels to making the wine and designing the packaging, everything is approached with the same level of precision and dedication to quality.

“Our inaugural vintage of a mere 2700 bottles marks the beginning of a journey for Glen and I. We are dedicated to bringing you the best and relentless in pursuing the extraordinary. Once you have tried ZanZibar Cellars wines we believe that you will come to agree.”

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
